 PTU Christmas Is Coming
This tutorial was written by me on November 5, 2013.
It was made out of my own creation and any similarity is purely coincidental.
I used PSPx2 but any version will do. 

Artist: Alicia Mujica
You can find this tube at La Boutique De Luna  HERE
This is tube is not sold alone, it is part of a pack, 
but she does have other tubes that would fit.
Please Don't use this tube without a license.
Scrap Kit: As The Wind Blows by Horseplay Pasture  
You can buy this kit at the Scraps From The Heart Store  HERE
Mask: WSL 84  HERE   
Font: Janda Quirkygirl Font  HERE

Here goes:

Let’s start with the mask layer:
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 1.  Open mask and minimize.
SELECTIONS – SELECT ALL – Copy and paste Paper 1 into selection.
Go to LAYERS – NEW MASK LAYER – FROM IMAGE – SOURCE LUMINANCE - CHECKED – from menu, find WSL 84 – OK.  Duplicate and merge down.  Re-size 115%.

Now for the frame:
Element 43 - C/P and re-size 85%.  Move a little to the left.  Make sure your frame layer is highlighted.  Grab your magic wand.  Click in the middle of the frame.   
C/Paste into selection Paper 3.  Keep selected.  
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one as me, get it now.  I used the CU of the tube.  C/P and move her into position.  SELECTIONS - INVERT - DELETE - SELECTIONS - INVERT.
Duplicate the tube layer.  ADJUST – BLUR – GAUSSIAN BLUR – RADIUS 25 - OK.
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and change the original layer to LUMINANCE (L) and reduce the opacity to 48%.

(see tag for placement)

Lets do some more elements now:
Element 17 - C/P and move this layer under frame layers and move to right side of tag.
(see tag for placement)
Element 56 - C/P and move under the frame layer and move down to bottom of tag.  Now I want you to use the mask you used for the mask layer.  Duplicate several times and then merge down.  Re-size 120%.
(see tag for placement)
Element 9 - C/P and move over top of frame but on the bottom of frame.
(see tag for placement)
Element 12 - C/P and re-size 85%.  Move to bottom left corner of frame.
(see tag for placement)
Element 61 - C/P and re-size 85%.  Move to top left corner of frame.
(see tag for placement)
Element 1 - C/P and re-size 60%.  Mirror and move to top right corner of frame.
(see tag for placement)
Element 26 - C/P and re-size 60%.  Move to bottom middle but a tad left on tag.

Element 45 - C/P and re-size 50%.  Move to top middle of frame.

  Element 60 - C/P and re-size 70%.  Move to bottom left corner over element 12.

Now for the tube(s):
